March 24 (UPI) -- A driver in the United Arab Emirates shared a video of the unusual means police are using to prevent speeding -- a sign that looks like a police car.
The video shows what appears to be a police car with its lights flashing at the side of a road, but something appears off about the vehicle as the filmer approaches.
The driver stops near the police car, revealing its wheels aren't quite touching the ground, and then drives past -- revealing the "car" was actually just a flat sign that appears from the front to be the side of a real three-dimensional car.
The filmer said they shot the video after initially being fooled by the sign.
"It was shocking moment for me. I thought it was a real police car so immediately I fastened my belt and lowered my speed. When I turned around, it was a joke for me," they wrote.
